The Artist and the Trinity: Dorothy L. Sayers’ Theology of WorkThe Artist and the Trinity

KempeKempe: The Life, Art and Legacy of Charles Eamer Kempe
By Adrian Barlow

‘One comes away with a sense of the shape of Kempe’s life, an interesting set of insights into his working methods, and, above all, the sense that he’s a considerable artist.’ ‘Adrian Barlow’s Kempe will send people back to the work, with much more background knowledge, with a clearer understanding of how his big Victorian studio worked, and, above all, with new enthusiasm and new eyes.’
